Introducing Purist - A new concept inspired by leading UK specialist anglers including Shimano consultant and youngest ever Angling Times Drennan Cup holder Darran Goulder. The upshot is a quality, 10-strong range of species and situation specific rods which offer everything the all round specialist fish hunter could wish for. Non-glare satin finishes, quality fixtures and fittings... at realistic prices which won't break the bank!
On waters where Pike lay further from the bank, the 12ft 3.00lb Shimano Purist Deadbait Distance rod will prove a deadbait anglers better option than the 2.75lb Classic version. Likewise if larger baits such as Mackerel and Herring are the choice, its extra power propelling them further on the cast without fear of overloading the rod or ripping the hooks out. High grade fixtures are otherwise identical to the Classic.
